Here is a list of the house style's that you could be; be sure to take the quiz and see which one best suits you:
Farm House or Horse Ranch: You're a hard worker who loves nature and wide open spaces. You are also probably an animal lover and don't mind getting your hands dirty. Quiet and solitude are what's relaxing to you, and you know your way around a garden. These homes offer amazing views because they are outside the city limits. They also have loads of character, sometimes made of logs or are sometimes even historic clapboard with wrap around porches. Areas like Woodinville, Marysville, and Snohomish are just a few areas where you might find a Farm House or a Horse Ranch.
Traditional Colonial: You are a conservative person and very reliable. The Traditional Colonial is your typical, tried and true 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom brick home with a center hall, living room, dining room plan. This type of home is found in the suburbs, so you probably like a little bit of space and are somewhat of a private person. You will find homes that fit your personality in Lynnwood, Bothell, Kirkland, Woodinville, Redmond, Renton, Issaquah and Lake Forest Park.
Craftsman: The Craftsman style of home was created to blend in with its surroundings, especially with the natural environment. If you love Craftsmans, you're laid back and love the great outdoors. The colors tend to be earthy, and the use of natural materials like wood flooring, wood shingles, interior woodwork, or even exterior stonework are quite common. For you, family is paramount in your life. Craftsmans are built around the concept of the "hearth" and usually have beautiful fireplaces whereby the family was meant to gather round. Lastly, Craftsmans were built in cities for the middle class, so you you prefer urban neighborhoods like Wallingford, Green Lake, Ravenna, Ballard, Queen Anne or West Seattle.
Tudor: You're a romantic and an intellectual. Your hobbies include reading, traveling, and exploring. Tudors are designed to be reminiscent of old English architecture and even castles. Often they include archways, leaded stain glass, turrets, and even bay windows with a reading nook included. You'll find Tudors in the neighborhoods of Montlake, Queen Anne, Capitol Hill, and Ravenna.
Condominium: You're low maintenance and a true city person. You appreciate convenience and like being social. Condos are great for people who don't want the work of a yard and like to live close to where they work. A condo is like a small community where it's easy to meet people and it's close to a lot of bars, restaurants, and shops. You can find condos in Pioneer Square, Downtown, Belltown, First Hill, Capitol Hill, Madison Park, and many other neighborhoods.
Contemporary: You are cutting edge and always know what's the latest and greatest trend. You're not afraid to take risks, and are considered a very stylish person. You're creative and maybe a little eccentric. Contemporary homes utilize a lot of interesting materials like glass and metal to create a modern interior and exterior. Asymmetry is common as well as large industrial sized windows and open floor plans. You will find contemporary style homes all over the Puget Sound, especially near the water. Fremont, Magnolia, Bellevue, Kirkland, Leschi, and Laurelhurst are just a few neighborhoods where you might find contemporary homes.

TEAM TROY, we are a bunch of fanatics that happen to be really good in the Seattle real estate business. Sure we could exploit systems, alter perceptions, and make more money for the sake of having more, but that’s boring – everyone does that. We’ve come to realize that work should be about increasing our standard of giving, not our standard of living. What keeps us going is our daily fear of dropping dead while doing something useless. We continually aim to be better agents, better neighbors, better partners, better parents, and better people with the singular goal of making folks like you better off than you were before you met us.
Discover our 9 point difference:
“Here at TeamTroy we have found that when we make our only goal, that of making others around us better off than they were before they met us, then everything else just falls in line. This simple mindset protects us from the status quo in real estate, and keeps us obsessed with results.”
Reach out to us today, and find out what you have been missing!
//WISE. Good judgement. Make important choices despite ambiguity. Always strategize.
//OPEN. No walls. Ensure everyone we meet has the same idea of who we are.
//IMPACT. Life is never about us. We strive to make a difference in at least one person’s life daily.
//CURIOUS. Hate the status quo. Learn something from everyone.
//CREATIVE. Challenge the traditional. Incessantly innovate around obstacles and design simplicity.
//BRAVE. Today is not just another day. Never be afraid to try what no one else will do.
//TENACIOUS. Never quit. As others drop back, we run faster.
//CANDID. Honest and blunt. Never alter perceptions but adjust the context.
//SELFLESS. Be salt. Make everything else taste better.
